|ACE DuraFlo eliminates every burden
associated with a conventional re-pipe. It is proven and used in thousands
of applications. We have included some of the frequently asked questions
about the ACE DuraFlo System.
Q1. Does pipe
restoration save money?
A1. YES! Since pipe restoration restores a building's piping system
within the walls, owners save money by not destroying walls, and
having to patch, tape, texture, paint, wallpaper or tile. The savings
in the reconstruction cost makes pipe restoration the less expensive
Q2. Does the pipe restoration outlast a new
A2. YES! New pipes start to deteriorate the moment the water is
turned on. Epoxy lined pipes protect from future corrosion or pinhole
Q3. Can an ACE
DuraFlo System restoration be planned around the tenant's or homeowner's
A3. YES! The ACE DuraFlo System restoration is planned as far ahead
as possible. An updated schedule of the suites or apartments will
be posted in the lobby on a daily basis. For a home, the homeowner
will be able to schedule their home as far in advance as they like.
The process should not compromise a tenant's or homeowner's standard
Q4. What type
of pipe can the ACE DuraFlo System restore?
A4. The ACE DuraFlo System is designed to restore all metallic,
concrete or asbestos piping systems. In galvanized or metal piping
systems, the rust and corrosion buildup within the pipe is removed
to restore full water pressure. Pipes are then protected to ensure
future buildup never happens. Copper pipes are cleaned of any oxidization
and coated with an epoxy barrier.
Q5. Is the ACE
DuraFlo System method safe?
A5. YES! The ACE DuraFlo System does not use chemicals in its cleaning
process, meeting North America's strictest water safety standards.
In addition, the epoxy used in the process is certified safe for use
in potable water systems.
Q6. Who has used

advantage of this proven technology for many years. Some customers
including hotels, government agencies, property managers, building
owners, hospitals, U.S. Navy, primary care facilities, and universities.
Q7. If pipes are old and fragile, can the ACE
DuraFlo System fix my pipes?

most piping systems back to full operating condition.
Q8. If a large hole is found or a blow-out occurs,
can you fix it?

the encrustation is removed from the piping walls. If a large hole
is found, we simply replace the affected pipe and continue with the
Q9. Will carpet and flooring be protected?
A9. YES! The crew conducts all their work inside the building so no
mud or dirt will be tracked in. The only working material likely to
touch the flooring is the food grade hose that supplies the air to
the piping system. In the event that the flooring requires special
attention, ground covers are put down before work begins.

DuraFlo System the most environmentally friendly alternative?
